Catalog no.: MRB70000163

Item ID: 492021

People's first exposure to this track was on the landmark 'Paid
In Full' album from 1987, and it was clear this had the potential to jump off as a single. The repetitive, simply scratched sample of 'Pass The Peas' by the JB's was an infectious ear worm that needed a truly strong MC to stand up to it. He did more than that - here Rakim spun timeless lyrics and lines that would go on to be sampled and referred to dozens of times down through hip-hop history. He took one of rap's great instrumentals and wrestled it to the floor. Of course, you can't have Eric B. & Rakim without Eric B. The DJ
gets his time to shine on the flip, and while he isn't a man
renowned for his dexterity and turntablist skills, the track
still knocks.
